UTAS Law ICANN68 NextGen recipient

Elizabeth Reed has been selected to participate in the ICANN NextGen program.

It is an honour and a privilege to announce that our final year LLB Honours student Elizabeth Reed has been selected to participate in the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) NextGen program. University and postgraduate students from around the world apply through a highly competitive process to attend and participate in an ICANN public meeting in their global region. Current Media Law student Elizabeth has been selected to represent the University of Tasmania to attend (what would have been) the upcoming ICANN68 meeting in Kuala Lumpur. The meeting will now take place remotely due to COVID-19.

Elizabeth holds the distinction of being the only ICANN68 NextGen participant selected from Australia, so she represents the country as well as the University of Tasmania. Elizabeth will be the third student from the University of Tasmania Faculty of Law to be selected for the ICANN NextGen program: Former LAW652 Media Law students Sophie Hey and Pierre Dordhain, who graduated in 2018, both attended the ICANN60 meeting in Abu Dhabi in November, 2017. The University of Tasmania Faculty of Law holds top rank as the institution within the Asia Pacific region with the most students selected to the NextGen program.
